Alan Parsons Project - SO FAR AWAY

rate me

(Bairnson)

We say welcome to the mission

Show us all what you can do

We need a man with vision

So we put our trust in you

And now we hope sincerely

That you'll do the best that you can do

Oh for sure it won't be easy

And we will have to risk our lives

Some will try to break us

And cut us down to size

But jsut remember

There can be no consolation prize

Not in our eyes

It's a long way to go

We can't wait one more day

We need someone to light up the way

We may run out of time

Can you hear what we say?

Because heaven is so far away

Although time is getting short

There's still some sand left in the glass

And now we have a living breathing

Rocket man at last

It's time to take a step

And nail our colours to the mast

No more talk of great adventures

When it's movement that we need

It must be our intention

That we never loose the lead

So count us down to zero

And let's get up to speed

We're up and away

It's a long way to go

We can't wait one more day

We need someone to light up the way

We may run out of time

So believe what we say?

Because heaven is so far away

And so now they cry for justice

As if justice will be done

But the eye up in the sky

Was flying to close to the sun

The Challenger has fallen

And the race has now been run....
